Although the colors are there, we are not quite at peak here in Jackman.
A drive North on 201 from Skowhegan the other day also showed some lovely color, especially as I hit the top of Johnson Mountain. The hills and mountains at higher elevations were beautiful and are closer to peak color then here in town. Maybe another week?
With that being said, if you are taking a drive up this week, enjoy the view and the mountains in the distance and have your camera ready.
We took a ride up US 201 the other day and the colors of fall are in bloom. With the cold nights, it will not be long for peak foliage to appear.
Today the skies are blue again but early morning temperatures around 40.
ATV trails are still open and it is a great time to explore the woods, see the fall colors, and enjoy the scenery. Dress warm.
It is a beautiful day today.
The temperature is around 80 in the shade and a nice warm wind is blowing off the lake. If I did not see our red maples turning, I would swear this was mid August still.
So despite the warm temperatures, yes indeed, the colors are changing.
FYI- Maine has increased the Lodging Tax to 8% starting October 1, 2013 through June of 2015. They have also made some other changes to the Sales Tax rates which you can find on the Maine.gov website.
